There are many
car accident lawyers to choose from
when searching for an attorney to represent you in your Michigan car accident claim. In fact, finding
a lawyer is not a hard task. What is difficult is finding the best lawyer
to best represent you. Choosing the wrong attorney can often mean the
difference between receiving the maximum settlement for your car accident
injuries versus not receiving a settlement at all.
So how do you make the right choice? Some suggestions for selecting the
right lawyer to help you after an auto accident include:
- Ensuring the lawyer you hire has significant experience in handing car
accident claims in Michigan. This includes a track record of representing
clients in situations such as yours and helping them obtain the maximum
settlement for their injuries. Questions such as, “How long they
have been in practice?” and “What percentage of the lawyer’s
practice involves auto injury cases?” would be good questions to ask.
- Ensuring the attorney has experience in the trial room. A well-experienced
and knowledgeable attorney should not be afraid of the trial room and
should in fact have some experience of taking cases to trial and winning.
- Ensuring the lawyer has an in-depth understanding of Michigan law and no-fault
insurance benefits. Michigan is a no-fault state, therefore auto accident
victims are entitled to receive certain benefits under the law regardless
of being at fault or not. The attorney you hire should be well-versed
in no-fault law, understand how to file and submit your claims, and have
significant experience dealing with the insurance companies.
- Finding out if the lawyer would personally be handling your case and that
you are guaranteed first hand attention to your case.
- Finding out what the attorney fees are and if they practice on a contingency
fee basis, which means no legal fees or costs until you win.
